KANO, Nigeria (AP) _ An airliner crashed into a neighborhood in Nigeria’s northern city of Kano on Saturday, with what Nigerian media said was 105 people aboard.

There was no immediate word on casualties.

The crash left Kano’s Grammaja neighborhood a ruin of smashed buildings and scattered plane parts.

An Associated Press reporter saw terrified, wailing neighborhood residents combing the rubble, looking for survivors or dead.

The plane, from a private Nigerian air company, crashed about a half-mile from the city’s airport.
